There’s No Room for Complacency in Cybersecurity
In the fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood”, a big bad wolf secretly stalks and eventually approaches Red, who naively tells him where she’s going. Using the information innocently provided by Red, the wolf quickly navigates to the grandmother's house. Once there, he wreaks havoc and waits for the girl. When Red Riding Hood arrives at the house, the wolf eats her, too.
Most fairy tales are surprisingly grim. But this tale resonates with the harsh reality faced by every digitally-enabled organization today. Big, bad cybercriminals lie in wait, attempting to destroy or disrupt systems, and steal data, or hold it for ransom. Using fraudulent emails and fake websites to lure users, or looking for vulnerable software and applications to plant exploits and malware, these wolves in sheep’s clothing are increasingly stealthy and sophisticated.
When it comes to cybersecurity, there’s no room for naïve complacency. Organizations that have a culture based upon “it’s always been done this way” are vulnerable due to their lack of vigilance. This mentality can establish a reluctance to change, placing them in a position of unnecessary risk. Organizations deploying multiple security products often become complacent, thinking they’re protected from cybersecurity incidents.
To be risk adverse requires continued vigilance
“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” ― Henry David Thoreau, Walden
A sound cybersecurity posture requires a strong foundation, with a platform as the cornerstone from which to build a robust security architecture. RevBits Cyber Intelligence Platform, or CIP, has a suite of detection and response, privileged access management, zero trust network protection, email security, and deception capabilities to protect the anywhere enterprise – wherever employees work and access digital assets on-premises, in the cloud, and within hybrid environments.
RevBits broad range of integrated cybersecurity products are best-in-class individually, and more importantly, provide superior protection, by seamlessly working together. These security products are building blocks that are unified within the CIP dashboard. RevBits’ extensible architecture can plug into other management and security platforms.
RevBits multi-layered security platform:
Is a unified security solution, that is modular and extensible.
Each security product can be deployed independently to work with Syslog, LogRhythm, Splunk, SIEM, and other log management and security platforms.
Includes best-in-class security; Email Security, Endpoint Security, Advanced Exploit Detection, Endpoint Detection and Response, Deception Technology, Privileged Access Management, and Zero Trust Networking.
Is a multi-tenant security platform that can be deployed in the cloud or on-premises.
Is a flexible architecture that allows security teams to deploy whatever security products and modules are needed. Add new capabilities by adding or removing licenses within the CIP dashboard.
Automates the detection and remediation of anomalous activity across a cross-functional multi-layered security stack.
Coalesces security functions into a single intuitive GUI dashboard that enables rapid cyber forensics, with analytics and context, to quickly resolve threats.
RevBits delivers unified, multi-layered security. We are advancing cybersecurity to a new level, taking down security barriers that formerly challenged enterprises and service providers. We’re solving problems made by siloed security products that create security gaps, leaving enterprises vulnerable to malware, man-in-the-middle, phishing and spear phishing, SQL injection, password, cross-site scripting, and other attacks.

How big is Email? So far, in 2021, over 319 billion emails have been sent and received worldwide.
Ultimately, all organizations stay connected through email, which carries information from one employee to another. Basically, email communication is the channel used by every company for internal and external communication. However, the primary question is, "How secure is the email system?"
It’s a common misconception that the only threats to an enterprise’s security come from external actors. Whether intentional or not, 47% of organizational data breaches are the result of internal human error, such as a misplaced device or document. Moreover, some employees present an even larger risk than others. According to recent reports, younger employees are more likely to bypass security protocols that are viewed as an impediment to their productivity. When it comes to onboarding new employees, young or old, enterprises must have proper security awareness & anti-phishing training, in addition to a strong privileged access management solution, to guard against the different types of human error that could create security vulnerabilities.
